We stayed here for 5 nights, one of which was our wedding anniversary.
Upon arrival we were greeted with a cold drink of our choice and were told all about the hotel and the local area and given information on the hotel, maps of the area and bus timetables etc.
Our room was on the 2nd floor and had a small balcony with table and chairs. The view was absolutely amazing! We could see down the coast and out to sea. It was lovely to sit and watch all the boats go by.
Breakfast was very good, plenty of choices. I can recommend the chocolate cake! Good choice of fruit, cheese, ham etc. All the cakes, croissants and biscuits are home made and they are delicious. There also eggs cooked how you want them.
We ate at Mama restaurant up on the roof a couple of times and the food is wonderful. The first time we ate there was for our anniversary. We were given menus but no wine list. As my husband is quite happy with the house red and I wanted a bottle of Prosecco this was not a problem. When the drinks arrived we had to ask for an ice bucket for the Prosecco otherwise it would have just been left on the table. We didn't think this was very good service considering the reputation of the restaurant. Having said that the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. They even brought us out a cake with a candle at the end of the meal for our anniversary. The setting/location for this restaurant is beautiful and very romantic. The views are truly wonderful, twinkling lights of nearby villages and towns.
We used the local buses a couple of times to get to Positano and Amalfi. They are very cheap but usually packed and you may have to stand for the whole journey. The hotel also arranged a boat trip for us to Capri, this is definitely worth doing.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good location and friendly staff.
